Degree: Communication Sciences and Disorders, General
Graduation Year: 2016

Although I had a highly atypical college experience with my father passing in my junior year, UF made me feel like I could succeed and make a difference even in the face of adversity. Every class at UF offered a unique challenge with a professor that showed they cared about his/her students. UF gave me a home and the knowledge and compassion to help others as a future Speech-Language pathologist. You can't find that at many schools!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Central Florida is the second largest school in the nation. The psychology program is one of the largest at the school. If you do not need hands on attention, this school could be everything you ever dreamed of. The amount of diversity this school has is amazing. Every day I met someone new. Even just watching others from afar gave me a truly different insight on life. I pursued a major with a minor and I am off to complete my doctorates and the professors at UCF are who I have to thank. I wouldn't change my undergraduate years for anything.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2009

University of Florida was great overall experience. The classes were sometimes challenging. Getting together with fellow classmates to complete work provided for different points of views on projects and a great base for finding new friends. The diversity on campus was great! Each month there was a different ethnic group being celebrated. There was a joyous sense of being associated with the "Gator Good."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Florida prepares students for every career, from business to medicine to journalism. In addition to the excellent education you will receive at this school, you also become part of the gator nation. Football games in the swamp are one of the best parts of being a gator, so make sure you go to every football game you can. Although advising is not always the most helpful, students have created various programs and clubs to make sure you get the most out of your time at UF and ensure that you get a job after graduation.

Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

I attended The University of Central Florida (UCF) for my Bachelor's Degree. I chose to attend this school because they offer one of the best programs in the nation for Legal Studies. Upon my completion of High School, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in law. Many of the other undergraduate institutions I was accepted to offered Political Science as their "Pre-Law" track. Politics don't particularly interest me, so when I saw UCF offered an excellent Legal Studies program, I was quick to make my decision. I believe UCF has prepared me to attend law school in the fall in a way that no other university could have. At UCF I had the opportunity to receive LSAT prep, become a member of a Pre-Law fraternity, and receive counseling from professors who attended law school themselves. Not only did UCF provide me with an exceptional major program, but a minor in Writing and Rhetoric as well. UCF gave me an educational experience I can be proud of; one that has prepared me for my future career. I attended The University of Central Florida (UCF) for my Bachelor's Degree.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Psychology is the largest major program at UCF, and they definitely have the respective resources. The professors want you to excel, there are research and volunteer opportunities everywhere, and overall the Psychology major program has a lot of great people who will help you succeed in your future careee path, as well as give you a good idea of who your competition will be in the workforce. UCF as a whole is a great school as well. The school spirit radiates from miles away, there is always something to get involved in relating to the community, and it's a gorgeous piece of scenery as well. I'm beyond proud to be a Knight.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The BSW program at UCF is a good introduction to social work. The classes are not very challenging. In order to get the most out of the program, you should participat in NASW, complete the honor in the major program, and commit time to volunteering. You have to take initiative to reap the benefits of the program.

Degree: Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

This school has great diversity and plenty of activities/clubs to get yourself into. Being that this is a large university, the majority of your classes contains hundreds of students, making it difficult to get to know your professor. Good luck with scheduling, especially when you are in your last few semesters. Some required courses are only offered once each semester, so if it is closed, then you'll have to wait until the next semester or whenever it is offered next. No wonder they call it "U Can't Finish" (on time). My tip is to get to know your academic advisor EARLY and make sure you plan out what courses you want to take and when so that you can be able to map out how long it will take to finish your degree. All in all, nice campus, great students, great sporting events and a wonderful lifetime experience.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2018

There is no reason for any student who attends the University of Central Florida to not be prepared for a career. The faculty emphasizes using their services to get internships and experience. My advisers frequently informed me of opportunities available to me.

Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2015

With over 60,000 students enrolled, the University of Central Florida is, of course, a large university, but aims to always foster a strong sense of inclusion. At this school, you will not get lost among the numbers! In an academic sense, especially as you begin classes in your major, the classroom size is great for learning. The instructors are professionals in their field and have an abundance of relevant knowledge to pass on to students, in addition to what you learn in the classrooms. The courses required for my major provided me with many of the resources needed to excel in my career. In terms of campus involvement, there is always activities going on! From the sports to campus activities to greek life, there is definitely something for everyone here. UCF allows you the opportunity to get a great education, make lifelong friendships, and always have something fun to do.
